Well; blow me down

Service was restored to most of the 12,500 San Antonio homes and businesses left without electricity Thursday after winds battered power lines throughout the day, a CPS official said.

Initially about 10,500 scattered customers lost power overnight, but it was quickly restored for all but about 1,300. The relentless winds caused more problems later in the day, however, producing a new total of about 12,500 customers without electricity, according to CPS Energy.
